Good Morning,Â New York GiantsÂ Fans!
The Giants’ defense is all but settled when it comes to the sure-fire starters; however, there aren’t many plug-and-play options that have enough talent to succeed at the top level. With roster cuts going down on Saturday, team’s have already begun trimming, leaving quality players to find new clubs.
One of the more recent cuts, linebacker Brandon Marshall, could fit perfectly with the Giants. Coming off a knee injury, Marshall must prove he’s capable of operating at a high level, as he once did with the Denver Broncos. Raiders coach Jon Gruden called Marshall â€œone of the best coverage linebackers in football.â€
With the emergence of Marshall on the free-agent market, it could force the Giants to cut veteran BJ Goodson in favor of the cover linebacker.
I thank Oakland for the Opportunity! Unfortunately I had to use training camp to work myself back to full health, and I did just that! Ready for what God has for me next ??

Marshall used training camp to return to full health, as he was unable to feature during the preseason. That might have hurt his chances to start right away for the Raiders, but he could be an impactful force for a different team. The Giants are extremely thin at the linebacker position and need to inject more quality to supplement potential injury and deficiencies. On a team-friendly deal, Marshall could fit the bill perfectly.
